Three new reports on partnership working between faith and local government.

New suicide prevention resources

Public Health England (PHE), in partnership with the National Suicide Prevention Alliance, has launched a series of case studies, films, factsheets and infographics to support local suicide prevention activity. The resources include:

  • Case studies such as work by Leeds City Council and the Fire and Rescue service to reduce social isolation
  • PHE South East and Thames Valley Police’s real-time suicide surveillance resource pack
  • Information sheets on working with coroners, evaluating suicide prevention activity, and socioeconomic deprivation and suicidal behaviour
  • A series of films: one with Steven Gilbert, a survivor of suicide, discussing how local areas can genuinely engage people with lived experience of mental health issues; and one with Lorna Fraser, Media Advisor at Samaritans, discussing the portrayal of suicide in the media and online
  • A set of slides based on local suicide prevention planning guidance, which you can use to make the case for suicide prevention and good practice within it
  • A range of key statistics and facts as infographics
